Catherine Hardwicke, casting director for Twilight, loved Fernandez for the part of Edward, but in the end, Robert Pattinson beat him out.
He told Interview magazine, “It appears that I was closer than I maybe remember. I did have a screen test and signed contracts and all that.”
4. He Has a PhD in ‘Being Sexy
When casting her future film, Red Riding Hood, Hardwicke brought back Fernandez for a screen test with Amanda Seyfried.
In an interview with EW, Hardwicke gushed:
Other guys I’ve directed in love scenes, I have to direct them, you know? Like, do that. Move your arm here. You don’t have to do that with Shiloh — he already has a PhD in just being sexy. He knows how to seduce. He’s got it going on. I was like, ‘Wow, okay. Roll camera!’
5. He’s a Vegetarian
He told Da Man:
I don’t eat meat, that’s important. I really like popcorn. I love the vegetarian burrito from Machos Tacos on the corner of Prospect and Vermont streets in Los Feliz, California. That’s my favorite thing, with two buckets of salsa.
